WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
WIT AND HUMOUR. ( A billiard ball oft gives a kiss for a blow. Many a bankrupt business man can testify to the impossibility of keeping one's head i above water and above whisky at the same Stime. " Well," said the man who handed his last ahillingto the I wyer, "I suppose turn about is fair play. I broke the law and the law broke me." In No Mood for Sympathy.-The milkman gathered himself up from the ruins of his do molished waggon, acraped the whitish gray mud from his clothing, smoothed out the dents in his hat, wiped from his whisker: the dripping fluid that had drenched his face when the catastrophe came, gave one glance at the runaway horse disappearing down the street, surveyed the dirtvy white puddles that represented his stock in trade, and turned to the crowd. " All I've got to say," he observed, rolling up his coat sleeves and speaking in the tone of a man accustomed to calling cattle, " is that the first son-of.a-gun that says a word about it's being no use crying over spi...

Melbourne Letter. -:o: [By OUR OWN CORRESPONDBNT.J Tuesday. ACCORDING to Mr Max Hirsch, who was entertained at a banquet the other evening, the days of protection in the laud are numbered, and in the near future Parliament will be taken pos. session of by a band of freetraders. In order to push on with the work a sui of £3000 is required, and all who have tie cause of feetalde at heart areastked to iire proof of their sin cerity by contrilbuting according to their mlleans. Now, quite apart from the vexed questioni of freetrade crstus protection, it nmay be asked-is the present the tight time to mtake an appeal for money to assist the free trade policy ? Parlialulent is about to close its labors and rest for a few inonths; no fixed question distturbs the .-ltimlunity; business of all kinds is laborintg halrd against the stortm, and there is trouble all over the land; anld then why attempt to raise strife and tariff questions I The battle of freetrady agai st protectio 11, of -rse, be...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. a The audacious minister of Pem r broke Chapel, Liverpool, has been flying 1 in the face of traditional religious preju dices in a way calculated to turn white the hair of some people. Ought people to read novels on Sunday?

" No church," he says, " has a taught the duty of masculinr purity as powerfully as it has been taught by Oscar Wilde in the 'Woman of No Impor tance.'

Tilden, Thaddeus Ste vens, Alexander Stephens, John G. Whittier, Walt Whitman and Phillips Brooks. The only comment to be made is that nobody knows how much greater they might have been had they married.
A Female Deputy Sheriff. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
A Female Deputy Sheriff. The novel spectacle of a prisoner being taken from the Central police station in the custody of a female officer was seen the other morning, when Benjamin Hilt, of Janesville, started for Belvidere, Ill, in charge of iMrs A. T. Ames, under sheriff of Bonne county, sayethe Milwaukee "Sentinel." Hilt was arrested at a boarding house upon a charge of stealing several hundred dollars' worth of jewelry from Mrs Ames, the woman who took him to Belvidero. A telegram was sent to Sheriff Ames notifying him, and he answered that an officer would be sent for the nrisoner. The officer was a woman, thirty-five or forty years of age. tall and of slender build. A pair of piercing black eyes looked out from under dark eyebrows, and the firm, reliant step showed she was a woman of determina tion. She wore a small black bonnet, a plush cloak and a black and grey travelling dress. In her right hand she carried a russet colored grip. She went to the Central police station and t...

Spring Valley. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
:o [isroom OUI OWN CORREO JINDEXT.) TUESDAY. THE suppliers of the Spring Valley Crea mery. ?ery. o s-?,?b cur morning la-s to find that a separator, of greater capacity than the one formerl)y in use, had been hfied up since the previous day. The new machine is capable of sepa rating 3oo gallons per hour, conse. quently suppliers do net lose such an amount of time in waiting for their milk to go throLgh, and therefore a source of great dissatisfaction has been removed. Previous to the new bowl being fixed up several suppliers had contemplated severing their connection with the creamery, but roeow they ntend, they say. taking up more shares in the company. The daily supply of milk at present is 700 gallons. The Yea council has accepted the tender for the making and reforming of the read from Mr..l. Doherty's to the creamery at the very low price of 127. The Engineer's estimate for the work was, 1 believe, £60. The weather remains very dry and rain is much needed. Grass and crops are n...

Correspondence. We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. THE PRICE OF SUGAR. To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
j(trret'.oslj 9 iicc. We do not hold ourselves responsioble for opinions expressed by correspondents. THE PRICE OF SUGAR. 2T tIe Edlitr if the Broadford Cour'ier. SIR,--At a r.ceting reported in your last issue, re the formation of a Co-operative store in ltroadford, a statement was made to the effect that sugar which wa.; sold in 1:roi:dord at iSs., could Lb bought for i5s. at a co-operative store in Rochester. Knovingthat from the price o. sugar, this must have been impossible, I sent to the I:cihester co-operative store, inloiring the price and received a reply to-day stating ti.,.t the price at the present time is 1ys. 6d. Of course the mis-statement was purely a mistake, perhaps through the duty lately put on -ugar or in its quality, J o McLILSIHper V. :.cL. Nov. S;93.
The Debt of Alcoholism. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
The Debt of Alcoholism.. THE most telling sermon, simply beeause it does not a rtte?mtpt argunnelt against the drink hanit, is the comlpalion ti national expendi ture oen bread, clothing and other necessaries against thi amount squandered in iatuxi cants. You will see, in altitst ever) Temperance Hall in the world, diagrams showing the enortrous propostion of the worll'a earntngs spent in contraecting a debt against health and society, which tile drinker can never repay, for the reason that his oppoitutnity ti dsoso will ne:er a:rive. In I neland, at any rate, the drink bill and the cost of food, elithiug and eduantion is as i to 1, and all this exlpansion of expenditure means the conltra'ion of erve ?nereasing debt--against heclh, against esociety, against decency. This drink disease is a terrible thing. In this century we are a eianits our mechanical inventors show us the nay to so multiply power that tile pressure of a linger lilts a ton-we have banished the darkness, annihilatcd...
